Trouble with mouse

Hey guys I'm trying to get both the touchpad on my notebook (redhat 8.0) and this logitech optical usb wheel mouse I have to work at the same time. I had it going for a while then when I turned on the notebook the next time I used it the externel mouse doesn't work I think I accidently let kudzu mess up my config file, but I changed somethings and it looks alright. Here are the important parts:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Anaconda Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "Resolution" "750"

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Resolution" "100"

The first mouse is the touchpad and the second is the Logitech mouse. When I look in dmesg it sees the mouse when I plug it in and even says what it is and some stuff about it. I have loaded input, usbcore, mousedev, and hid so that it will work and the laser comes on in the mouse but it just doesn't work in X. I also can't get it to work by itself
